To answer the many questions we've received about our wireless roadmap, we've just published first information on our Partner News Blog about the AP Series EOL plans and a tentative schedule for Wi-Fi 6/Wi-Fi 6E. The aim of this information is to provide as much transparency as possible and no action is required at this time.
Our plans for the AP Series (AP 15, AP 55 , and AP 100 models) end-of-life changes on any platform will be carefully considered to ensure that we give you the maximum amount of notice, and cause minimal disruption for our partners and customers. We also aim to have an alternative product available in good supply before we make any changes. Please read the post(s) below for full information.
We understand that you probably still have many questions. We will provide further updates as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding.
eventually Sophos could be fair to customers and extend support of old APs for a year. Then you can fill your stock with new WiFi Products and when they can be bought again, and only then think again about dropping support for old APs.
Still not heard anything new about WiFi6 from Sophos... Already used widely in Consumer products but not here on the business branch... Not to talk about you're not able to buy WiFi Hardware from Sophos im time.
We will not make any changes for the old APs until there is a new product available in good supply. We will provide further updates on this very soon.
